Pythagorean Plato: Prelude to the Song Itself

Pythagorean Plato: Prelude to the Song Itself by Ernest G. McClain
English | Mar 1984 | ISBN: 0892540109 | 192 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

My book develops certain musical insights of Ernst Levy and Siegmund Levarie into Pythagoreanism in general and Plato in particular, and owes its existence to their encouragement and assistance over a period of many years. My further collaboration since 1974 with Antonio T. de Nicolás, reported in The Myth of Invariance, uncovered the musical-mathematical foundations of this material within the much older Hindu sacred writings and permitted Plato's story to be told with greater confidence and in fewer words than I had thought possible.

Five more CDs of Connie Francis, picking up right where Bear Family's earlier White Sox, Pink Lipstick set left off, in 1960 – although its 300-plus minutes of music only cover the period of 1960 to 1962. By this time, Connie Francis was established as one of the top female vocal talents of her generation, and she was ready to experiment – you hear her successful move into country music, wonderful outtakes, and never-issued songs from her early-'60s sessions…

A few of these small choral gems are well known to amateur choirs, and Poulenc's secular choral pieces are more often presented one at a time on choral albums than in the groupings in which they were originally included. Francis Poulenc: Secular Choral Music offers the composer's very first choral piece, the Chanson à boire for men's voices (1922), but most of the music here dates from either the late '30s (the Petites voix, for female or children's voices, and Sept chansons) or the World War II era (Un soir de neige), the folk-song settings entitled Chansons françaises, and the ambitious Figure humaine, whose final number, "Liberté," was dropped in sheet music form over French cities by Britain's Royal Air Force. Someone once described Poulenc as "part monk, part hooligan," and these a cappella choral works give evidence of both tendencies. The Chansons françaises are cheerful pieces with just a shade of extended harmony, almost French counterparts to Bartók's folk song settings, while the more serious pieces, such as "Un chien perdu" (A Lost Dog), from the Petites voix, have a mystical tinge that links them strongly with Poulenc's better-known sacred choral music.

This 2004 survey of modern settings of the medieval sequence Stabat Mater Dolorosa is part of conductor Marcello Viotti's project to record the little-known but worthy sacred works of the twentieth century, in conjunction with the Munich Radio Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Chorus for their concert series Paradisi gloria. The four works by Francis Poulenc, Karol Szymanowski, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Wolfgang Rihm are dramatically different in conception and musical content, and may be regarded more as reflections of personal faith than as practical works for ecclesiastical purposes.

Savons-nous vraiment ce qu'est une plante ? Nos sciences naturelles, dominées par le modèle animal, méconnaissent les spécificités du monde végétal. C'est une vision neuve de ce monde, riche de surprises, que propose l'auteur, et qu'il illustre de sa main experte. Souvent considérées comme une forme de vie inférieure, les plantes constituent pourtant un succès biologique qui vaut, ou même dépasse, celui des animaux ; mais notre vision "zoocentrique" de la biologie nous empêche de le percevoir. Nous ne pourrions pas vivre sans les plantes, alors qu'elles n'ont pas besoin de nous. …

After exploring the music of his Sephardic ancestry on the acclaimed recording Latino Ladino (Naxos 8573566), Yaniv d’Or brings a refreshing perspective to the Dichterliebe from Schumann’s proverbial ‘year of song’. French songs of the 19th and 20th centuries offer d’Or’s exotic voice further dimensions in the floating harmonies of the young Duparc and Debussy, including Reynaldo Hahn’s beautiful Bach pastiche, and concluding with the classical simplicity of Poulenc’s first songs.
